Debris not only prevents crawl space access, it can become a mold reservoir, a home for vermin, or it may contain dangerous components like asbestos or rusty nails.
These nails, splinters, and possible vermin that may be in the debris are a hazardous to workers entering the area. Wood materials also invite termites, carpenter ants, or mice, rats or other pests which will damage your home and possibly spread diseases.
Old cardboard boxes and stored junk invite mold growth, termites and rodents.

Do not bring mold-suspect boxes of stored items out of the crawl space (or basement) back into the living area of the building. Take them outside for inspection and if appropriate, cleaning and salvage.
Is there wet or falling or rodent-infested fiberglass insulation in the crawl space area? If so there is a high risk of mold or pest contaminants that could present a fungal, bacterial, or viral airborne hazard. We recommend completely removing all fiberglass insulation from crawl spaces. Keep in mind that 30% of the air you breathe in your home comes from your crawl space.
